Chapel Hill’s First Female Mayor Sworn In
■ Former Mayor Ken Broun
and outgoing Town Council
member Jim Protzman were
honored for their service.
BY MARY-KATHRYN CRAFT
Rosemary Waldorf was installed as the
new mayor of Chapel Hill and four Chapel
Hill Town Council members took the oath
of office in a special ceremony held Mon
day night. Waldorf is the first woman
elected mayor in Chapel Hill.
“It really is a special privilege to serve in
an elected office," Waldorf said. “I feel
especially privileged to serve with this group
Along with Waldorf, council members
Julie Andresen, Joe Capowski, Mark
Chilton and Pat Evans were installed.
“It is an honor to serve the people of
Chapel Hill, and I look forward to working
with Mayor Waldorf," Andresen said.
“Local government touches lives of people
in ways that the other (governments) don’t. ”
The first duties of the newly installed
council included adopting a procedure to
fill the vacant seat left by Waldorf. The
council adopted a process that will publish
notices and applications about the vacant
seat on Dec. 10 and 17. The deadline for
applications will be Dec. 18, and at that
time the mayor and council members will
begin to review all applications.
There will be a special meeting held on
Jan. 2 in which all applicants will be given
the opportunity to make a statement. At
this time the council can make nomina
tions. During the regular council meeting
on Jan. 8, the new member may be chosen
and given the oath of office.
Waldorf said if the process did not fill
the seat the first time, the council would
continue the process until it successfully
seats a ninth member.
“All eight of us understand this is a very
important appointment. It is for two full
years,” Waldorf said. “We will consider
this in a responsible way.”
Outgoing member Jim Protzman asked
the council in his goodbye speech to seat
Richard Franck. “I trust that you will do
the right thing and seat Richard Franck,”
Police: ALE’s Cops in Shops
Successful, Benefits Town
BY CHERYL CHIN
Alcohol Law Enforcement agents and
police officials hope the success of the
Cops in Shops program will continue to
make a difference in Chapel Hill.
The statewide program was established
to deter underaged drinking. “The pro
gram was designed to detect ABC law
violations by persons less than 21,” ALE
agent Chris Waters said. Undercover agents
sometimes come and pose as convenience
or grocery store workers to target violators
of various alcohol laws, Waters said.
“We have reduced some of the fights
and assaults (that occur when alcohol is
involved),” said Captain Tony Oakley of
the Chapel Hill Police Department. Thus
the program has been effective in his eyes,
he said. Oakley also said he hopes to see
the results continue with the decrease of
violent crimes in the area.
The Cops in Shops program is done
randomly throughout the state, targeting
locations that give rise to many alcohol
complaints, Waters said.
ALE started this weekend’s raid on
Thursday, Nov. 30 at Elon College, then
progressed to Durham County, and ended
up in Chapel Hill on Saturday, Dec. 2. The
agency will continue this program and
come back to Chapel Hill if the need arises,

were also sworn in at the ceremony, and outgoing council member Jim Protzman was honored.
Another duty of the new Council was to
recognize the work of former Mayor Ken
Broun and Protzman. The council passed
resolutions of appreciation for the contri
butions made by both outgoing members.
Protzman made closing remarks about
the hands of underaged people, it’s good,”
However, Oakley said he wanted to
make a very clear point as to what the
police department and ALE was trying to
“We’re not just out to get people for
underage drinking; there’s a bigger under
lying problem that we ’re trying to correct, ”
Oakley said. The reduction of victimiza
tion of people when alcohol is involved
motivates the police department to push
these laws, Oakley said. “We’re trying to
reduce some of the bad effects alcohol is
having,” he said.
Several fights and assaults that occur on
weeknights and on weekends on Franklin
Street are related to alcohol, he said.
The law says a person must be 21 to
purchase or consume alcohol because theo
retically older people are more responsible
drinkers, he said. “A person who wouldn’t
usually pick up a rock and throw it might
do so today because he’s impaired.”
In addition, when impaired, it’s easier
to become a victim for different crimes, he
added. “Many times we find people that
can barely find their way home, and it’s
just as easy for a criminal to find them and
take advantage of them,” he said.
The police are trying to protect possible
victims by keeping alcohol out of their
hands, he said. This is one of the major
goals we are accomplishing with this pro
gram, Oakley said.

the future of the town. “I would suggest to
the new council and (the) people of Chapel
Hill to set your sights very, very high,”
Protzman said. “We should not be so
caught up in our political correctness to
make a difference in the nation.”
University Won’t Profit From Carquest Bowl
BY JOHN PATTERSON
UNC’s guaranteed payout of $750,000 in the Carquest
Bowl will not make the Tar Heels’ fourth consecutive bowl
appearance a profitable one, UNC Director of Athletics
John Swofford said.
“I don’t think the payoff is
large enough for it to go into the
profitable range,” Swofford said
Monday. “Our experience with
this type of bowl is that travel
expenses usually take up much of the payout.”
Swofford said teams that received higher guaranteed
payouts got more money for travel expenses from the

Faculty Gets First Crack at Communications System
BY LILLIE CRATON
UNC faculty members will have the
chance to try out anew communication
technology system months before it will be
available to the general public in North
Carolina, announced UNC Chancellor
Michael Hooker and Eric Ensor, president
of Bell South Personal Communications,
in a news conference Monday.
Bell South has chosen UNC as the test
site for Personal Communication Services,
a digital system that offers wireless tele
phone service and paging service through
one handset, Ensor said.
Hooker, who placed the trial program’s
first PCS phone call to head basketball
coach Dean Smith, said he had been look
ing forward to trying the new technology
for quite a while. “I’ve been reading about
PCS for several years,” he said.
Hooker said he thought the system
would be very useful for faculty members,
especially doctors at UNC Hospitals.
"We envision that this will come in very
handy among our physicians, especially
those moving around a lot,” he said.
Bell South will provide 200 faculty mem
bers and administrators with free PCS hand
sets in exchange for input on the system’s
voice quality and usefulness, Ensor said.
After using the handsets, PCS users will be
asked to complete surveys and participate
in focus groups.
As part of the trial, Bell South plans to
erect four antennae on existing campus
buildings to link the PCS signals to the
existing phone network.
W aldorf also offered words of praise for
former Mayor Broun. “I want to say how
over the past two years I have appreciated
the patience, friendliness, and considered
good judgment of (Broun),” she said.
In a farewell speech, Broun thanked the
expense allotment is for each team," Swofford said.
The Carquest Bowl’s payout is the minimum allowed
by the NCAA, but both UNC and its opponent, Arkansas,
could receive more money depending on ticket sales,
Swofford said. “Extra attendance would definitely in
crease the payout for the team,” he said. “This is a very
enticing location, and Arkansas is a much more attractive
opponent for us than Syracuse, since we would have
played them again early next season.”
Despite the low payout for UNC, each athletic depart
ment in the ACC receives a percentage of bowl revenues,
he said. “We will benefit from Florida State playing in a
higher-paying bowl,” he said. “It is set up in a way that
each school gets a portion of bowl revenues.”
Florida State, which is playing Notre Dame in the
Orange Bowl in Miami, is guaranteed an $8.2 million
payout, said Dave Kobuszewski, assistant director of

“ We envision that this will
come in very handy among
our physicians, especially
those moving around a lot!"
Dr. Christopher Baker, a professor of
surgery at the School of Medicine, said
PCS technology would make it easier for a
doctor to be reached for consultations or
during an emergency.
“We spend a lot oftime running around,
and many of our activities are unplanned,”
Key University administrators and
health and safety personnel are among
those scheduled to test the new equipment.
Ensor said PCS was an improvement
on traditional cellular service because of
higher voice quality, better security and
the inclusion of the pager system.
“We think this is another step toward
providing new technology to the Caroli
nas,” Ensor said. “We expect this to be a
phone that gets used as people wander
through their daily lives.”
Ensor said Bell South would offer PCS
to the public by the middle of next year. He
said handsets would sell for between $ 100
and $250, and service fees would be com
parable or less than normal cellular fees.
“Our goal is to provide a service that
will appeal not only to the business folks...
but also to the mass consumer.”
staff members he had worked with and the
residents had served over the past four
years. He also talked about his greatest
accomplishments as mayor. “Chapel Hill
was a terrific place when I became mayor, ”
he said. “My greatest accomplishment is
communications for the Orange Bowl. “By being one of
the top bowls in the country, our sponsors are going to
have to pay more for the teams in the Orange Bowl,” he
said. “Part of the money Florida State receives will go back
to the ACC and eventually to the other schools.”
Clemson is guaranteed $1.3 million in the Gator Bowl,
while Virginia will receive a guaranteed sl.l million for
playing in the Peach Bowl, respective bowl sources said.
The Carquest Bowl, scheduled for Dec. 30 at Miami’s
74,913-seat Joe Robbie Stadium, will hopefully attract
fans looking for sun and warm temperatures, Swofford
Going to a bowl game, though, is not all about money
and payouts, Swofford said. “Getting a chance to go to a
bowl provides more than just money,” Swofford said. “A
bowl game gives us national exposure, helps with recruit
ing and gives the younger players more practice time.”
